The ornament that has to be displayed

Postby Andybev01 on Fri Nov 14, 2008 5:56 pm

How many of you have that one ornament that no matter how tattered or ugly, has to be displayed or it just isn't christmas?

Here's mine. He is one a pair made in the 50's and in real life they don't scowl at you...only in photos.

...and those 'candles' look a lot like billy-clubs...

weird.

You think he looks evil? No! He looks Christmassy to me!

I have an old one from my grandmother that my parents always used to put up. Kind of a sequin bird thing that is really pretty, but kind of showing its age. I'll have to take a picture of it.

I used this for my card that year ;-)

HA HA...reminds me of a Santa playing the drums that my mother-in-law had ...his eyes light up RED when he plays the drums. It scared the living daylights out of my kids when they were little!

I have a ton of tacky ornaments I have to display! Even on my beautiful new tree this year, I still added them! Some are from as far back as childhood, and decorating the tree would not be the same if I ever left them in the box, instead of hanging them and remembering the day I first received the ornaments.

I agree that seeing the old ornaments is a wonderful way to bring back memories!
